Wild for Washi!

Yes, I made it back from Stampin' Up! #Convention2013.  No, my bags weren't overweight!!  I have so much to tell you about my experience.  But I need to be quick today, big men with a moving truck should be arriving at my house in an hour!

Here's a sweet Washi tape swap I participated in.  One of the most asked questions I receive is "how many swaps did you take?"  Over 200!  But I started working on them in June.  I was most excited about this washi tape swap!
What do you think?  Are you wild for washi? 
Have a great Sunday.  I'll be back this week with Convention highlights!

Greetings from Post-Convention!  One of the events I participated in while in SLC was a shoe-box swap with 47 other demonstrators.  It was so much fun.  Here was my design.  The colors are little off in the photo - that is Pistachio Pudding.  And the card is a CASE of myself.

Four You is quickly becoming my go-to greeting set!  
See ya tomorrow!

It's my goal to send more cards this year.  I make them...that's not the problem.  There's a disconnect between my house and the mail box.  Are you collecting the best of stamp sets?
I'll be back next SUNDAY with another Best Of tour and you'll NOT want to miss it :)  

One of my favorite things they're doing with some of the images from the Best Of, is that they are smaller than the original image.  So very cool!  This hydrangea was from Because I Care, an exclusive hostess set.  It's now in the Best of Flowers set.  

Happy crafting!

Thanks So Much

Look - no fuss!  How often so you see that here?  This was a swap from my friend Brooke at the Baltimore Regional convention way back in April.  :)  

She's used her markers directly on the stamp to achieve the variation in the stamp.  

Only certain markers are available individually - that's why it's so awesome that markers from the Color Refresh are being offered.  

Have a great day!  I will be stamping all day!

A Thousand Thanks

Happy Hump-Day visitors!  Did you like the turtle?  I was testing blogging from my phone....just in case I need to blog from Convention, I wanted to be sure I could without taking my computer.  I have enough "stuff" to get to Salt Lake.

One of the swaps I'm participating in, is an organized Thank You swap.  This one is a little too much work for swaps - but I wanted to share it with you.
To achieve the variation on the swallowtail image, use your dauber to apply ink.  Start with the lightest color first - then daub the dark ink.  

Do you love this color combo?  

Speaking of thanks.....we interrupt this blog post, to bring you some news! 
NEW product has been added to the Clearance Rack!!  My favorite:


Sweet Deets (all supplies Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Lots of Thanks, Swallowtail
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Stazon

One Week!

In a short week, I will be boarding my flight to Salt Lake City.  This is the 25th anniversary of Stampin' Up!  Our annual convention will also be a giant party.  Estimates are over 5500 attendees from all over the world will be at Convention.  5500: Swapping, hugging and crying.  Old friends unite, new friendships are made - all in the name of stamping.  This will be my first Convention.

Check out what I'm in for...this is the 2012 Convention Highlights!

That means I only have a few more days to finish stamping, shopping and packing!  Eek!!
I didn't know how I'd feel about the Ruffled Stretch Trim ribbon, but I LOVE it.

I won't be blogging from the event - I have quite a busy schedule, but the blog will still be rolling and I'll have sooooo many pictures to share with you when I return.

Thanks for allowing me to share my paper crafting with you,
